9/11 memorial ceremony at Binghamton City Hall

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - A number of services and remembrance ceremonies were held throughout Greater Binghamton Monday to honor the lives lost on September 11, 2001.

Binghamton Police and Fire gathered alongside Mayor Rich David and State Senator Fred Akshar Monday afternoon at City Hall.

David worked for the Rich Bucci Administration in 2001 and spoke about the City's efforts to provide assistance after the attacks unfolded.

He says first responders didn't have much information, but they took off to help those in need.

"Go now and you'll know more when you arrive in New York City. Someone there will tell you how to help. If they don't, they would just go to Ground Zero and start looking for survivors and digging people out. And away they went," said David.

As a gift from New York City first responders, Binghamton was given a steel beam that was recovered from the World Trade Center's North Tower.

The memorial is located between City Hall and the Binghamton Fire and Police Stations on State Street.
